Paris Saint-Germain's coach Carlo Ancelotti (L) talks with Paris Saint-Germain's English midfielder David Beckham during the French L1 football match between Paris St Germain and Brest on May 18, 2013 at Parc des Princes stadium in Paris.
I've finished my career in a team that has treated me like I've been here for 10 years. PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti said it was unlikely that Beckham would feature in the last game of the season away to Lorient on May 26. We have to decide, but I don't think he will play. He will come with the team but I don't think he will play ... a plastic pitch is difficult for a 38-year-old
I spoke with David and told him that in my last (ever) game I scored two goals ... I said to him 'Maybe tonight you'll score two goals' - but maybe he didn't have my quality.
He will miss the world of football because he showed a good image every time, really professional ... I think that he is sure that this decision was the right moment and we have to respect this. It was a fantastic evening for him. He will have a very good memory of this night.More quotes »
